"It's sad to see Speaker Gingrich lashing out in a desperate attempt to try and save his floundering campaign," said Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul. "Speaker Gingrich will say anything to distract voters from the fact that he suffered an unprecedented ethics reprimand, was forced to pay a $300,000 penalty, and resigned in disgrace at the hands of his own party. His record is one of failed and unreliable leadership and simply one Americans can't risk."
Me thinks Ms. Saul you missed the point here. And frankly you aren't answering or responding to Newt's accusation. Gearing up for today's big primary in Florida, the Newt Gingrich latest  campaign gambit, is a robocall out in Florida. Here's the copy:
'As governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney vetoed a bill paying for kosher food for our seniors in nursing homes. Holocaust survivors, who for the first time, were forced to eat non-kosher, because Romney thought $5 was too much to pay for our grandparents to eat kosher. Where is Mitt Romney's compassion for our seniors? Tuesday you can end Mitt Romney's hypocrisy on religious freedom, with a vote for Newt Gingrich. Paid for by Newt 2012.'
A few days back I read about Mitt's veto on HuffingtonPost, but decided to write on something else instead.Made a mental note on this.... But wasn't thinking it was such a winning item that a candidate would use it in an ad, well Newt not only used it. He made it a zinger! Now because of Newt, in some small way anyone whose read about or seen or heard the ad will from now on have a sense that Mitt Romney has it in for the Jews. Which of course means he hates Israel. So in turn if you are Jewish you 'might' not ever vote for this anti-Semite. I mean he obviously hates Jews right, he forced those old ladies to eat 'non-kosher' end of discussion.
I understand this isn't Romney himself speaking. But in either case he should come out and nip this accusation in the bud. Did you or did you not veto the 2003 bill? If you did the answer is... Romney: Yes I vetoed the bill. Then you can tell us your reasoning behind it. If you can't remember make up an excuse. But don't respond to this accusation by changing the subject.Is this how you plan on running Washington, by changing the subject. Accusing others of lying. See Mitt, if you had just answered the question none of this 'crazy' thoughts would have entered my brain. 
Mitt one suggestion.... Watch how President Obama responds to attacks... you might learn a thing or two.

"I don't think he's intending on passing any laws this year, --" 
After President Barack Obama's [re-election campaign speech], whoops, his State of The Union speech in front of the Congress [and the nation... world], the talking heads came out and expressed their views. The fun part now is to see how much if anything that he proposed will get passed or even voted on during this years election campaigning. 
I for one think our President will have a few rabbits up his sleeve. That by the end of the, there will be one or two big moves by Obama that will will infuriate the republicans. That will make them turn blue in the face and scream that he did an something illegal or unAmerican to get it accomplished. That the end of our nation as we know it will happen in fact because Obama got his way.
While the other side of the aisle already announce "He's got to know that none of those things he proposed really have much of a chance of going through both houses of Congress," said Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, top Republican on the Senate Finance Committee.
"I don't think he's intending on passing any laws this year," said  Paul Ryan [R-Wis.] "He's in a campaign. That was his re-election speech." Paul every speech a politician makes is a re-election speech. You know it and I know it. So stop the whining.
Probably New York's Sen. Charles Schumer, said it best, while he was pushing  on "some kind of Romney rule, I mean Buffett rule."  
One of President Obama's proposal which sound good to me, offering tax incentives for companies that brings jobs into the United States. Something you would think that the Republican would favor. Instead we her BS like this. Calling it unjust and impractical to raise taxes on companies that set up operations overseas.
"They locate their facilities to be close to the customer," said Dorothy Coleman, vice president for tax policy for the National Association of Manufacturers. "That's a big concern for us, targeting multinational companies as if there is something wrong with doing business overseas."
Of course then they sell it the overseas manufactured items here in the grand old US of A.

What is it about these candidates and their endorsements. Why is it that someone who got laughed off stage for being a clown is now a person that you want promoting your abilities for the highest office in the land. Please explain this to me. Please. I mean, year after year, we watch these losers, these wannabe's. Former enemies become best buddies. And sometimes Vice Presidents.
To have someone, who clearly used the election process as a means to sell his name, and most importantly his books on a national scale. To have a man who left the race because of accusations from numerous women who claim that he sexually harassed them. To have this man come out and endorse Newt, whose own history with women has many conservatives freaking out. To have him, sell Gingrich like his latest Pizza creation is to say the least, a little ironic. 

"I hereby officially and enthusiastically endorse Newt Gingrich for president of the United States,"  Cain proudly announced, "There are several reasons, many reasons, as to why I have reached this public decision. I had it in my heart and mind a long time ago," "I know that Speaker Gingrich is a patriot, Speaker Gingrich is not afraid of bold ideas." 
But then, as usual, Cain came out with one of his statements that make you thank the powers that be that he didn't win the job. Tbe kind of coment that makes you scratch your head. 
"And I also know that Speaker Gingrich is running for president, and going through this sausage grinder -- I know what this sausage grinder is all about,"  "[because] he cares about the future of the United States of America. We all do." "I am inspired, you are inspired, Speaker Gingrich is inspired, because it's not about us -- it's about the grandkids,"
Cain I am so inspired? In fact I am so inspired I think I'm going sit back and watch Dr. Strangelove. Cause the more this election campaign continues, the more that flick seems sane to me.

"What kind of man would mislead, distort, and deceive just to win an election? ... This man would. Mitt Romney."
Wow, I'd almost vote for Newt, just for his latest ad. Talk about calling the kettle black. Mitt Romney [whose opinions change seemingly, depending on whom he's talking to], was possibly blind-sided by a brilliant new ad that Newt Gingrich put out. Airing on several broadcast and cable stations in Florida, this 1 minute gem, gets right to the heart or shall we say, lack of heart, in the problem that is Romney.  The problem with Mitt [sounds like a Lifetime cable flick] is that no one really likes him. He's got, sorry... not  the warmest of personalities. Mitt talks to you like he's your stockbroker who knows better then you. And if you have a question, he seems to be able to meander his responses just good enough to appease your doubts. And with Mitt, there are always doubts. Especially if you are lucky enough to hear his response of the same question to someone else.
The ad entitled "What Kind of Man?" is the most vicious attack so far, by one candidates upon another, it slams Romney and truly showcases The problem with Mitt. And it does so by using former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee [who ran against Romney in the 2008 GOP presidential contest], is seen talking into the camera. "If a man's dishonest to get a job, he'll be dishonest on the job," Huckabee says. Hmmm, is he inferring that Mitt is a dishonest man? Damn thems' fighting words. Then over a blurry picture of Romney that slowly comes into focus we hear a voice query "What kind of man would mislead, distort, and deceive just to win an election?" the voice answers his question. "This man would. Mitt Romney."  Simply great work by the Newt campaign and they should be awarded for their efforts.
In your face Mitt, take that you Romney, dang didn't I smack you good. 
Of course when the person behind the ad is Newt, we all should sit back and discuss whose making the claim. Whose attacking the Mitt? And since it's Newt, we also should ask him the same questions. And, whoops Newt, you've also been known to throw your share of the BS. Haven't you Newt? Planning any shutdowns in the near future? Just pondering?  
Of course the best thing in all this mudslinging is the amount of free advertising President Obama is getting. And the getting is good! 
So keep up the good work fellows. The more you tear each apart, the larger the landslide will be come November. And if the economy keeps getting better. Bam, talk about a Change coming to Washington in 2012.

'We are spending billions and billions of dollars, wasting money, wasting time, delaying people. A United States senator’s going to be secondarily searched? Oh everybody should be treated the same,” [Santorum said sarcastically.] “Use common sense. Please.'
During a Tea Party rally on Tuesday evening, in Punta Gorda, Florida, Rick Santorum, offered up a vociferous defense of law enforcement profiling when asked about possible overreach by the Transportation Security Administration.Referring to a recent incident where Kentucky Senator Rand Paul was forced to miss his flight after refusing a secondary search. 
“They should be profiling people who are the most likely folks to be able to do it [referring to terrorist attacks]. Now understand, because when people hear profiling they say, oh he’s going to profile based on race or religion. No. Profile based on the profile of someone who does these things. Right?”  
How funny, whenever these fools are asked to describe what a terrorist looks like, they try very hard not to basically say... muslim, or dark skinned, or whatever would not seem racist. But the truth is, there is no one description of what a terrorist looks like. Or for that matter, a serial killer, a rapist, a mugger, or even a person running for political office...

Well Newt you certainly do live in your own reality... During the last debate Newt  and Mitt discussed that he wanting a permanent home on the Moon. Nice thought. But really, now. Shouldn't we spend the funds on other less fantastic projects. I don't know, maybe things like education and infrastructure are at least as important as a man standing on Mars. But, Newt. Now? And now there's news that you will be making a major speech on your vision of man's future in space. Really. No big speeches on the 'real' world problems we face. Only topics that make people forget our problems. 

Sure since we aren't spending trillions on Wars [this week] we could be able to afford this. But thanks to a decade of unnecessary wars, we owe so much, I guess only fantasies will be promoted, since reality is something alien in the 'right's mentallity.
The last Bush in the White House also mapped out a Mission to Mars. Again reality had no place in the conversation.

"It should certainly be a priority," said Romney when asked whether, during a time of reduced federal spending, space exploration should be a focus.
"What we have now is a president who does not have a vision or a mission for NASA. As a result of that, there are people on the space coast that are suffering. Florida itself is suffering as a result," he said.
So this is how we end unemployment, we go to Mars. Just call me Buck Rogers.

'Make The Best Out Of A Bad Situation'
Really Rick Santorum, 'Make the Best of a Bad Situation' is that the best you can come up with. While a nice sentiment, its always best to look at the brighter side of a situation; some situations can not be sugar coated. During a recent interview on CNN's Piers Morgan, Rick Santorum tried to explain his opposition to abortion even in cases of rape. 
"Well, you can make the argument that if she doesn't have this baby, if she kills her child, that that, too, could ruin her life. And this is not an easy choice, I understand that. As horrible as the way that that son or daughter and son was created, it still is her child. And whether she has that child or she doesn't, it will always be her child, and she will always know that," Santorum said. "And so to embrace her and to love her and to support her and get her through this very difficult time, I've always, you know, I believe and I think the right approach is to accept this horribly created -- in the sense of rape -- but nevertheless a gift in a very broken way, the gift of human life, and accept what God has given to you. As you know, we have to, in lots of different aspects of our life we have horrible things happen. I can't think of anything more horrible, but nevertheless, we have to make the best out of a bad situation and I would make the argument that that is making the best.  
Aren't you one considerate human being. Also, I'm sorry, one man's opinion can not subjugate the majority's view point. And remember its supposed to be the Separation of Church and State. In other words ones religious views should never decide one's elected decisions.

AND THEN THERE WERE FOUR Finally the republicans learn how to Debate Well they may not have any solutions but finally they at least know how to be entertaining Of course watching this debate, at times it felt like their we’re only two people involved. The two big stories that came out of last night’s CNN debate is that Romney’s air of invincibility has begun to crack and we actually finally had to really debate. 
Saturday’s victor “is likely to be the next president of the United States, DeMint, predicted on CBS This Morning.  Oh, really, hey DeMint as Mitt would say “I’ll bet you $10,000 ... " you’re wrong. What, aren’t you a betting man, I mean, why haven’t you endorsed somebody yet. Scared or something? Oh yes, that’s right. Your prediction isn’t exactly a sure thing... is it. “Newt’s not perfect, but who among us is,” Perry said in backing Gingrich. “The fact is, there is forgiveness for those who seek God and I believe in the power of redemption, for it is a central tenet of my own Christian faith.”
“... but who among us is,” But who among us is.? Well we know one who certainly isn’t, right Perry. The only perfect thing you did in this race was leave it. And you couldn’t even do that right... endorsing Gingrich, another ‘whoops’ moment there if you asked me. And I know as a former presidential candidate, you are interested in a citizen’s opinion. Right Perry?
“Let’s get onto the real issues, that’s all I’ve got to say,” for once Romney, sounded like a man with a brain. Shushing some Gingrich’s cheerleaders, and getting a few of his own. But as soon as he seemed to have the crowd with him, Romney did what he always does at these points. He throws in a little dig, a little ‘I’m superior then you” vibe comes out. He lost his glow when he pointed out that he and his wife, Ann, have been married for 42 years. Romney aren’t you simply perfection personified. Oh, and how many jobs did you eventually create today...
Talk about being sneaky, underhanded and just plain not nice, Gingrich thought he had this debate sewn up before he entered it. He had his magic trick, his ace up his sleeve. The big hot button issue of the week was Romney’s taxes. Why is he being so secretive about his earnings. Finally it seems little Lord Fauntleroy is getting quizzed upon about ‘how’ rich he really is. And as was well announced proudly by the debaters last night. Romney “what are you hiding?”
If there’s anything that’s in there that’s going to help us lose the election, we should know before the election. If there’s not, why not release it?” Gingrich said.The stupid thing in all this is that every election this issue comes up. And Romney this isn’t your first dance at this rodeo. Stop playing games. Today he announced that he will be releasing his 2010 and an estimated 2012. Guess we don’t need the previous years to showcase how much he made when he ran Bain Capital into the ground. Romney’s excuse and reasoning on the subject when asked about the issue Friday on Fox, said he didn’t want to give Obama and the Democrats a “nice little present of having multiple releases.” sounded logical but as Newt said it best we need to know if something’s up, sooner not later. Heck release everything before this year’s now. 
“We started a number of businesses; four in particular created 120,000 jobs, as of today. We started them years ago ... Those that have been documented to have lost jobs, lost about 10,000 jobs. So (120,000 less 10,000) means that we created something over 100,000 jobs.” ROMNEY:  What about the thousands if not hundreds of thousand jobs lost cause of you shutting job companies.
When news broke Thursday morning that Texas Gov. Rick Perry was dropping out of the race for the Republican presidential nomination, longtime Texas progressive pundit Jim Hightower was positively giddy.“He embarrassed us enough,” said Hightower, who preceded Perry as Texas agriculture commissioner. “When he got started, I warned people not to underestimate Perry -- he’s a lot stupider than he looks.” Well Jim, I couldn't have said it better myself.

"Here on our watch we will stand, we will stand for life, we will never forget, we will never give up, and next year we will gather in a day of celebration when we have finally ended abortion in this all important election," she said. "Join me this year. Choose life."
In her first public appearance since dropping out of the race, former GOP Presidential Candidate Michele Bachmann (love the way that sounds) does it again. Even though she's officially out of the race for the presidency Ms. Bachmann continues to make statements that prove why she wasn't up to the job in the first place. Speaking at an anti-abortion in St. Paul, MInn., she said that the Supreme Court decision should be repealed within the next year. 
Well Michele luckily for the rest of us, what you think should happen won't. Also what won't happen next year thanks to you and your buddies is a republican in the White House or the end of Obama-care.

“I hate to say it, but ever since the schools integrated (in the 1960s), it went downhill,” unemployed paralegal Vicki Cotterman said at a campaign stop for Perry in Walterboro on Thursday. “The white boys try to be like some of the black thugs - they go around with their pants down to their knees. It’s disrespectful.”
On the occasion of celebrating the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the quotation above showcases how far we need to go as a nation. The words ‘ever since the schools integrated (in the 1960s), it went downhill,” It seems integration was a bad idea. So in other we shouldn’t mix the races. And I’m sorry using of the term ‘thugs’ when describing ‘black’ people disturbs me to no end.  To have a citizen discuss race without even realizing how racist she sounds is a sad statement. The fact that Ms. Cotterman isn’t running for President doesn’t make me feel any better [actually worse, since she's not trying to get my vote], but it showcases how far as a nation we need to go. 
The republican leaders who are running for the right to face President Obama have used new state laws [which were recently enacted by several states] that would require residents to produce a photo ID before they could vote. Texas Governor Rick Perry bitched on Saturday at a candidates’ forum in Charleston  “Each of our states are under assault right now by this administration,”  “We may be under assault - South Carolina, they’re actually at war with you.”
The voter ID conflict stems from a new state law that would require voters to show photo identification at the polls. Federal officials and South Carolina Democrats who oppose the law say it could disenfranchise up to one-third of black and other minority voters. South Carolina is one of six Republican-led states that tightened their laws last year to require a photo ID, a measure conservatives say will deter fraud. 
On December 23, 2011, The Justice Department blocked the law on the grounds that it would disproportionately affect minority voters. Republican presidential candidates call it another example of Obama’s overly intrusive government.
How ironic then that these same Republicans were okay, during this years first Republican Caucus [which took place on January 2, 2012 in Iowathat the Republicans required No Photo ID to Vote. I guess they are implying that Republicans are honest, and the Democrats and Independents aren’t. In fact according to their own “Bullet-Point Guide to the 2012 Republican Party of Iowa Caucuses,” as posted on the state party’s website, only new registrants those registering to sign up with the Republican Party and vote on the same day at the caucus, will be asked -- but not actually required -- to show photo ID. 
Perhaps as usual, they read their rules. 
I hate to say it, but ever since the schools integrated (in the 1960s), it went downhill,” unemployed paralegal Vicki Cotterman said at a campaign stop for Perry in Walterboro on Thursday. “The white boys try to be like some of the black thugs - they go around with their pants down to their knees. It’s disrespectful.” Is actually pretty typical language for how these ‘people’ speak.  Newt Gingrich said another one of his brilliant statements [on Friday at a campaign stop in Duncan, South Carolina] that make you scatch your head...
“If the only people who vote in elections are law-abiding, hardworking citizens who are deeply committed to America, the left wing of the Democratic Party will cease to exist,” 
Simply amazing, you would think that someone running for the highest office in the land would know better. The scary thing is, I’m pretty positive that each one of these people who come up with statements that can be misconstrued, probably know exactly what they are saying. To think after all these years, after all the struggles for Civil Rights, that in the year 2012, on the celebration of a great American, Dr. martin Luther King Jr.. we still have to hear these pseudo racist statements showcases how far we need to go. But seeing how well our current president has handed his historic time in office, surely must mean we've come very far as a country. Giving me much hope for our future as a society and as a people.

How dare some people, especially those in political office to even suggest the hope that our President will disappear, pass away. Die. Leaving our First Lady a widow, and his daughters fatherless In either case, if done in jest or by claiming ignorance an investigation is in order. For if in true Kansas House Speaker Mike O’Neal, sent an email to his Republican colleagues recently endorsing a controversial prayer that [some say] calls for the untimely death of President ObamaThe slogan “Pray for Obama. Psalm 109:8.” used in an email from O’Neal refers to, Let his days be few; and let another take his office.” not too bad so far [could only be meaning only a one term president], but the problem here shows up in the next verse of Psalm 109, which continues, May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow.
May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow.
Really? Did I read correctly... May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow.” O’Neal writes in a message accompanying the email:
 “At last -- I can honestly voice a Biblical prayer for our president! Look it up -- it is word for word! Let us all bow our heads and pray. Brothers and Sisters, can I get an AMEN? AMEN!!!!!!”
As usual in these cases of utter stupidity and may I call it possibly treason, for what is when I person especially in political office sends out hopes for the President's passing on Government devices. O’Neal’s office has insisted that his use of the psalm was referring only to the first segment. Of course you were. You skipped the rest. 
Whoops too many words there for you? You only read the crib notes you didn't read the entire book. I'm sorry, but you send out anything via the  government, I'm pretty positive others review what you sent ahead of time. So if there was anything that could be conceived of as questionable, it probably wouldn't have been used. And if it was, I'm pretty sure it was intentional. And guess what? It was, and by you. So now you must face the piper.
If true Mike O’Neal you are about to be this week's whipping boy. The face of 21th century terrorism.

Here's an entry that hits home, more then most of my entries. Usually I bitch, complain, whine about big issues. Things that effect me more mentally then physically. Racism, bigotry, War, politics. They effect me, but they don't touch my everyday life. Okay, they effect my everyday life, but not usually smack in front of my eyes. Phew. Anyway, here goes.
I actually got some action on a complaint I sent in. Unbelievable, for once I opened my mouth and my internet savvy, and won one for the small guy. 
You see a few months back I had to face the same old problem that people in my neighborhood have had to endure for years. And every time I've complained, called and bitched about it in the past, nothing was ever done. I mean could I 'again' be the only one bothered by the situation. Does no one besides myself have a problem with breathing carbon-monoxide fumes for hours while waiting for a bus. Standing there while gypsy cabs illegally park in the bus stops, in the intersection, or double-parked idling their engines. 
You see at the B36 bus stop, right outside the Sheepshead Bay train station. [Which is located at the intersection of E16 St., and Sheepshead Bay Rd. in Brooklyn of course], this is what I have to deal with each and every time I wait for the local bus.There have been days that the bus stop looks more like you're standing in a fog.
So this time I had had enough. This time I wrote my complaint letter & sent it to the police, office of transportations, traffic, the mayors office, and lastly several newspapers and television reporters. I questioned why nothing had ever been done about this. Who was closing their eyes to the problems. 
Well the other day I received a call from the police, it seems that they actually heard me. It seems they've started canvasing the area, and discovering that, whoops look there's a problem. In fact yesterday they gave out 'a' ticketThey also claim that they will now be doing this on a regular basis. Yes! Bam! In your face! Whose your daddy now ... Paybacks a bitch! isn't it. Doesn't it pay to follow the rules.Score one for the little guy.
Yes, I am the man. You bother the Feigeles, and you have to pay.

Looks like, Gov. Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Jon Huntsman have to find the deligates for the Republican Presidental Primary somewhere other then Virginia’s Republican presidential primary ballot.
U.S. District Judge John Gibney has refused to add their names to the list of the eligible and  ruled today, on Friday, January 13, 2012 that the candidates knew the rules months ago, and  should have challenged Virginia’s primary qualifying rules earlier [Like before the deadline.] Perry sued last month after failing to submit enough signatures to get on the ballot. Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Jon Huntsman who also failed to qualify, later joined Perry’s lawsuit. They asked Gibney to declare Virginia’s law unconstitutional and add their names to the March 6 ballot. Well guess what fellow’s it sucks to be you today.

During one of Rush Limbaugh's afternoon radio broadcasts [to hear the audio and/or to read more about this, check the links below], Rush raised the subject of slavery and Jim Crow when he discussed the Obamas' behavior in office. 
Using "The Obamas," a controversial new book, by New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor, Limbaugh said that the couple viewed their tenure as an opportunity to "live high on the hog," and that the idea that they were "owed this because of what's been done to us and our ancestors" was "part of" their thinking.
Simply put Rush, what is your problem? Why does every time you open your mouth crap has to keep coming out of it. Who or what dropped you on the head as a child to make you turn out the way you did. To have the audacity to even go there. To have to keep bringing up slavery when discussing President Obama.To suggest that our President and first lady are 'Living high on the hog' because of what happened to their ancestors. What a load of trash. Instead of discussing how great it is, that despite racism, President Obama was elected. Now thats something to celebrate.
I think if they were doing what you say they were doing, don't you think it would be more obvious. More in your face, you fat, pompous bigot. How sad that your entire conversation deals with attacks on the left based on racist theories. How sad that people actually listen to this junk and how scary that some actually believe any of your theories. But what a great country that someone of your ilk could make millions from others to spread your foul agenda.
Keep up the good work Rush, perhaps one day soon you will say something worse and get yourself kicked off the air.

“I like being able to fire people who provide services to me"
So it finally happened to the Republican front-runner, yes. Mitt Romney at the worst first possible moment had his worst possible moment. From day one in this campaign, Mitt has been soaring above the rest of the field. Easily avoiding any bumps in the road. Ignoring interviews and generally acting as if he’s the predestined winner. And for the most part its worked. But a funny thing happened on the way to his landslide victory. His adversaries finally hit pay dirt. They figured out Mitt’s weakness. They cut thru all his layers of bull and finally took off their gloves. The question being, is it too late to change todays’ primary results? Either way, this past weekend, the sharks finally began to draw blood. 
The first blow that landed was from former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman. From out of know where, Mr. Huntsman has entered the race. It occurred after Mitt Romney’s complaint about Jon Huntsman working under President Obama:
“I think we serve our country first by standing for people who believe in conservative principles and doing everything in our power to promote an agenda that does not include President Obama’s agenda. I think the decision to go and work for President Obama is one which you took,” he continued “I don’t disrespect your decision to do that. I just think it’s most likely that the person who should represent our party running against President Obama is not someone who called him a remarkable leader and went to be his ambassador in China.”
Mr. Huntsman hit the ball out the park with his response
“This nation is divided, because of attitudes like that,”  
And for the first time in these debates, the crowds cheered for a good reason. Not against gays, not against women’s rights, not even against bigotry. But against all the crap that Romney has been piling on in his eternal quest for the White House. Huntsman continued:
”The American people are tired of the partisan division. They have had enough. There is no trust left among the American people in the institutions of power and among the American people and our elected officials.”
In that instant you could hear a pin drop. This was the opening bell for the primary fight that’s occurring today. And the next day on the campaign trail, Mr. Huntsman continued:
“First of all, with respect to Governor Romney, you know, there are a lot of people who are tuning in this morning. And I’m sure they’re terribly confused after watching all of this political spin up here. I was criticized last night by Governor Romney for putting my country first,” said Mr. Huntsman. “He criticized me while he was out raising money for serving my country in China. Yes, under a Democrat. Like my two sons are doing in the United States Navy. They’re not asking what political affiliation the president is. I wanna be very clear with the people here in New Hampshire and this country. I will always put my country first.  And I think that’s important to them.”
Of note: The president appointed Mr. Huntsman to his position in August of 2009. He then retired from that post in January of 2010 to pursue a run for the Republican nomination..
[An aside: Mr. Huntsman I need to congratulate you, finally we have someone in the race that actually could make it interesting. A real alternative to President Obama. Actually someone who could win the whole thing. A Real challenge. Democrats start worrying.]
And yesterday, without realizing it, Mitt shot the arrow thru his own heart. By expressing a sentiment that many of us feel, but saying it the wrong way. Mitt has inadvertently given his adversaries their tag line. Their slogan against Mitt. Brilliantly using his own words and own voice against him. And the beauty in all this is seeing the glee in their faces. Finally we got him. Finally Mitt’s not so unbeatable. Finally they really have a chance to defeat Goliath. One of them could actually become President. God did speak to them. [Okay, back to reality]
The other candidates have seized on Romney’s weaknesses, beginning to draw a real distinction between the truth of Romney accomplishments and the ways he’s been touting them.  So each one of them came out swinging with great lines of their own. 
"Gov. Romney enjoys firing people. I enjoy creating jobs," Jon Huntsman 
"If you're a victim of Bain Capital's downsizing, it's the ultimate insult for Mitt Romney to come to South Carolina to tell you he feels your pain. Because he caused it," "I have no doubt that Mitt Romney was worried about pink slips - whether he'd have enough of them to hand out." Rick Perry continued "I had to shake my head yesterday when one of the wealthiest men, I suppose, that's ever run for the presidency of the United States -- the son of a multimillionaire -- Mitt Romney, he said, 'I know what its like to worry about whether you're going to get fired,"  Perry continued "'There were a couple of times when I wondered whether I was going to get a pink slip.' He actually said this. Now, I have no doubt that Mitt Romney was worried about pink slips, whether he was going to have enough of them to hand out."
"What's clear is he likes firing people," Jon Huntsman added. "I like creating jobs."
My friends, me thinks we now have a race. It’s very possible this ‘accident’ by Mitt could be his undoing. Perhaps Huntsman, or Santorum or even Newt will jump ahead and never look back. All I know is that the republican race has just really begun. How fitting it happens on the day of it's first primary.

I read this great article this morning, Wall Street Employees Threaten To Quit If Bonuses Aren’t Up To Snuff by Jillian Berman on HuffingtonPost [link below] which got me thinking about greed. Not an unusual topic when discussing Wall Street. The article was on brokers from Wall Street firms who might quit their jobs because their annual year-end bonus could be a lot smaller then expected. If it is true that some employees are threatening to quit over this, one question comes to mind: How much money is good enough for you?
According to Simplyhired.com, the current average salary for wall street stock broker jobs listed is $114,000. Not bad if you ask me. In a time when people are happy just to have job. Where unemployment continues at a high rate, salary raises are few and far between; where many people have had to take a cut in salary or take days off without pay. Is it simply greed for someone who makes a large salary to bitch if their bonus is shrunk. 
If it’s true that the bonuses, in many cases, are considered part of their annual salary, then each year their salary should fluctuate with the amount of sales they procure. Hence if the sales are lower, the employee in fact should get a lower salary. As far as I know most brokers are paid [at least] partially in commission, so if the sales aren’t up to snuff, their pay would be less. So they should be happy with whatever bonus they do receive. And if the CEO’s and heads of Corporations can prove profits were down, then they should  pay their employees less. Therefore these brokers should just shut up like the rest of us when we don’t get raises.
Right now people are happy just having a job. Many have to take two or three just to get by. So when I hear reports about the rich griping, it makes me think What’s wrong with these people?’  I know a lot of us spend as much money as we make or more, to live the lives we do, and then grow accustomed to living beyond our means. 
So when unforeseen or  financial burden occurs, or in this case you receive less then you expect from your bonus; you may want to bitch out loud. Please think before you do. The poor are listening and sorry we don’t feel sorry for you. What the rest of us see are spoiled brats who live The Life of Riley. Dressing in clothes most of us can’t afford to try on. Living in condo’s that cost millions while we struggle to pay our monthly rents.  Believe me, we won’t be shedding any tears when you bitch that you can't afford your $250 lunches anymore. 
So go ahead and quit. I’m sure there are thousands waiting to suffer at your measly salary. And I hope you saved up, cause getting that next job might not be so easy.
